Open webOS: Now Too Late


It was a year ago that Open webOS beta was released.

There was a minor flurry of excitement as various people got it semi-working on a bunch of devices.

Then silence.

Then along came MultiWindow Android.

And MultiWindow Android is just better.

LG is supposed to be using webOS for a Smart TV. With Chromecast having shown people that a $35 dongle can make an ordinary TV smart enough, I think LG has placed a losing bet.

In addition, combining MultiWindow Android with Miracast and a large-screen TV is superior to any Smart TV that’s ever been produced.

webOS was cutting edge for its day but I think that day is now over.

I’m moving on.

Huawei Mate 2 Phone: eInk Device Size


The Huawei Mate 2 phone will have a six-point-one-inch screen [Google English].

eInk eBook devices such as the Kindle, Nook, and Kobo have a six-inch screen.

The Singularity is here.

(Yes, the Samsung Galaxy Mega has a bigger screen, but the Huawei Mate 2 seems to be closer to 4:3, like an eInk screen.)
